    Cave in Hall of Fame

    [big]Cave enters Aria Hall of Fame on his own terms[/big] [smallest]October 29, 2007[/smallest] [smaller]Source [/smaller] SINGER Nick Cave has accepted his induction into the Aria Hall of Fame, but it was on his own terms. The Australia-born songwriter last week said he was "dreading" tonight's induction during the annual music awards. But on the night, he was gracious in accepting the honour. However, there were a couple of conditions - that his band mates from The Bad Seeds and his former band The Birthday Party be inducted as well. "I cannot really accept this until we get a few things straight," Cave told the crowd at Sydney's Acer Arena. "What I can't figure out is why I am up here and The Bad Seeds aren't? "I would like to do a bit of inducting myself." Cave then thanked the members of The Band Seeds and The Birthday Party, the 1970s Melbourne gothic rock band which launched his career, for all their work with him over the years. "I would like to, by the power vested in me, induct these people also into the Aria Hall of Fame." Cave also thanked his mother, his wife Susie Bick and four sons. Later, he told reporters there were a few other Australians artists he would like to see join him in the select club. "Is Kylie in there?"asked Cave, who recorded the duet Where The Wild Roses Grow with Kylie Minogue in 1996. "She f---ing well should be!" AAP And there's a slightly older article on his reluctance . (I wanted to make the title something to do with "Cave" and "Hall", but I'm not as good as RJ at these things. Any suggestions?)

    Why does music move us?

    How sad it is to think that there are Human Beings that actually don't like some form of music,it seems almost impossible because music is universal and with so many forms that some toe tapping must surely be going on!

    Jim Morrison

    I just finished reading No One Here Gets Out Alive, Jim Morrison's biography. Wonderful Read by the way. Anyway, just wondering about what people think about his death. No Autopsy, No Doctor or Police Signature, No-one saw his dead body but Pamela Courson. Apparently. Is he really dead?

    I think the song idea would be easier, so we can just listen to the posted links. I don't know much about the past year in new music.

    Great suggestions, y'all. Remember, they don't all even have to be albums. We can also have a list of songs, movies, books, whatever I'm thinking: Best (or maybe worst?) Covers British Invasion (which could be best groups, songs, and/or maybe albums- hmmm..should we include or exclude Beatles and Stones? Could even specify decade if we want...) So, have fun with this - let your imagination run wild.

    Canary in a Coalmine-The Police

    Canary in a Coalmine-The Police Album: Zenyatta Modatta Year: 1980 This catchy folk song written by Sting. Miners would send canaries into the unknown perils of coalmines to ascertain whethe or not the conditons were adequate for miners to work there. If the canary did not return from the mine, the mine was deemed dangerous and work would be postponed to a later date when the mine was thoroughly cleansed

    It seems like alot of these aren't really the best moments of metal, just some of the most memorable. I think that the thing or Tony Iommi's bottle cap fingers should be the number 1. I also think that Inna-Gadda-Davida should be MUCH higher. IMO, that was the first real heavy metal song.
